Ah Seen

Yesterday a posted a new 36 page comic (in pdf form) called "Ah Seen." It's mostly abstract, though not completely, and is an experiment in appropriation and not drawing. You can download it for free here.

First Quatrain

Here is the final tier of my newest comic.  I put the whole page up to give you the full context.  I think it works much better than the "gag strip" versions I post. 

Erase strip

Here's a piece I did last year that I don't think I ever posted here:

Blaise's post reminded me of it in some weird way.

Tier 2

I hesitated to post this comic bit by bit.  At first I was going to post yesterday's little section and then post the full final version. 

Then i thought they looked kind of like abstract comics gag-a-day strips.

Anybody wanna remix these with Peanuts dialog?

The Beginning of Something New

I am trying my hand at comics sonnets again.  My original comics sonnets were fourteen pages long with ten panels per page.  This was fun to play with, but made the comics seem more epic than the original sonnet that they mimicked.

For this round of comics sonnets, I am sticking with fourteen rows of panels instead of pages, which will make the poem shorter.  I also think it will be easier to see the visual rhyming sequence this way.

Here's the first tier of panels:

More to come. . .

Henrik Rehr's "Reykjavik" reviewed by Matt Madden

Matt Madden and Jessica Abel's rundown of the "Notable Comics" list from "The Best American Comics 2010" continues, and yet another abstract comic--by yet another AC anthology and blog contributor--is discussed. (See here for Matt's review of one of my pieces, see here for Jessica's review of Derik Badman's piece from the anthology, and see here for Jessica's discussion of two pieces by Warren Craghead, including "Un Calligramme" from the anthology; they have also reviewed so far pieces by anthology contributors Jason Overby, John Hankiewicz, and Damien Jay, though not--or not fully--in their abstract mode).
